At David Rice DDS, we restore decayed teeth to create smiles that are both healthy and beautiful. Recent advances in both techniques and materials have made the ‘impossible’ not only possible, but affordable for everyone in Elgin as well.
Dr. David Rice has been restoring teeth since 1986. Ongoing training is essential for staying on the cutting edge of the cosmetic dentistry industry.
Decay is the most common Elgin dental problem and the second most common disease in the nation (number one is the common cold). If you have one or more teeth with decay, it’s time to take care of them.
Fillings, inlays, onlays and dental crowns are used to restore teeth for our Elgin cosmetic dental patients. Even the most basic procedure – filling a cavity – has evolved. There are several types of new materials available including porcelain and composite resin. Each has specific strengths and aesthetic considerations. Elgin patients who replace silver amalgam with tooth-colored fillings love getting the metal out of their smile.
Inlays and onlays are more extensive restorations. There are two types: direct or indirect. Direct inlays and onlays are made in your Elgin cosmetic dental office on the spot and applied in one visit. Indirect inlays and onlays are fabricated in a Elgin dental lab. They usually require a second visit but the results are well worth the extra trip.
When an Elgin client has a tooth that cannot be restored with an inlay or an onlay, a natural-looking crown is the answer. At David Rice DDS, we create crowns that blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Let us show you some photos of patients who have received smile makeovers – you will not see any “Chiclet” crowns that stick out like a sore thumb. In fact, you won’t be able to tell which of our Elgin cosmetic dental clients have crowns.
